    In progress...

    Old model of Yak 9 1/35th , modified as one of Normandie Niemen. Lots of difficulties due to poor quality of printing and design. Wing fully redesigned with internal structure. Some parts added.
    Definitely not the best model I have made :cry:
    Let's say it's a prototype....... :evil:

    I am very glad to show what model I am doing now.
    There's long way to go though.

    The ModelArt VISBY CORVETTE + WESTLAND LYNX 1:200

    And the Yak-23 Czech camouflage( easy to find in the following picture). Excellent design by NOBI.

    That's the model I'm working on at the moment. Another GPM B-25 Mitchell is also somewhere on my desk.

    Liberator looking good. Is it a Navy version, or what? - I don't recognize the color scheme.

    Here's the finished Phoenix. I couldn't resist adding Jimmy and Hardy to the background. "The design is perfect the only possible defect is the pilot". Or something like that. Anyway, I used the double stick tape method for the windscreens. Nice to have no glue smears to deal with. The rigging in metallic floss from the craft store and the spreader bars were shaved and shaped from bamboo skewers.

    Thanks guys, The Canford Frosted Silver paper seems to have just about the right level of beat-up look for this model.

    PB4Y-1 Liberator

    Here is a piece of History.
    The PB4Y-1 depicted by the model served with VB-103 stationed at Dunkenswell, Devon, England. On the night of November 12, 1943 this aircraft, flown by Lieutenant (jg) Brownnell, attached a German Type IXC U-boat noth of Cape Ortegal, Spain. This was U-508 commanded by Kptl. Goerge Staats of the 10th based at Lorient, France. In the ensueing battle LT. Browell and crew succeded in sinking the U-boat but the PB4Y was apperently heavly damaged by the U-boats AA fire and crashed into the sea. The next day, two oil slicks were spotted, about 5 miles apart. There were unfortunatly no survivors from either the PB4Y-1 or the U-boat.

    Regards: Falcon

    Dunkeswell! Hey, that pic of me looping in a Stampe SV4 is over Dunkeswell! Small world. When I was there last, (9 years ago) they had a prop pulled out of the sea which they reckoned was from a crashed USN bomber. It was pretty badly corroded though...
